How did I miss seeing this one, Michael? You did an excellent job here and Congrats on the Finalist. I haven't seen many bees in my yard this summer for some odd reason. Maybe the cone flowers are too bedraggled for them, too. I think it may be because all the flowers had such a late start this year.

The flower is lavendar, right? #9585622
